Keeping all of our web properties fast and secure is of utmost importance to us. Calcey’s QA automation was crucial to The Wikimedia Foundation in ensuring the quality of agile product releases

Challenge

The Wikimedia Foundation operates some of the largest collaboratively edited reference projects in the world, including Wikipedia, a top-ten internet property in terms of global traffic. The scale of the web properties managed by The Wikimedia Foundation made automated testing an essential requirement and the Wikimedia Foundation engaged Calcey to build out an extensive test automation suite.

Solution

Calcey’s testing team created a test suite using Selenium covering functional tests and cross-browser compatibility tests that ran across all of the Wikimedia Foundation’s internet properties. The testing process was automated end to end with test results and report generation also fully automated. 

Technologies: Selenium RC, NetBeans, and PHP

Impact

Calcey’s solution enabled the Wikimedia Foundation’s development team to operate much more quickly and efficiently, with the safety net of a fully automated test suite in place.
